OTTAWA – The federal government says it’s reviewing its funding policies for organizations in the cultural sector in order to promote safe work environments.

The announcement comes days after the founding artistic director of Toronto’s Soulpepper Theatre resigned from the company when four actresses publicly accused him of sexual misconduct.

Albert Schultz has denied the allegations from the actresses, which were outlined in lawsuits filed against him and the company earlier this week.

The Ministry of Canadian Heritage did not explicitly refer to Schultz in a statement it issued on ensuring safe workspaces, but said “recent events” have prompted it to reaffirm a zero-tolerance approach to harassment on the job.

It says it’s currently reviewing its funding policies to ensure that “recipient organizations promote healthy and harassment-free work environments.”

It says recipient organizations already must comply with the public sector’s ethics code.
